Elementary STEM Courses

UtSTA offers week-long elementary endorsement courses over the summer months in partnership with Brigham Young University, Utah Valley University, and Southern Utah University.  All courses are taught by highly qualified instructors that have experience in K-12 classrooms like yours.  The classes are designed to be hand-on and inquiry based so that teachers can learn the lessons/techniques and take them back to use in their classrooms.  Each class lasts for only one week and generally starts Monday and ends Friday.


  • Due to the generosity of The STEM Action Center, the cost for each course has been dropped to a reimbursable $100 for a current UtSTA Member and $200 for a Non UtSTA Member (Join UtSTA and save significantly). This covers the price of the instructor, class location, supplies, food (lunch and snacks), and university credit recording fees. Once the course has successfully been completed, the $100 will be sent back to the UtSTA member participant.
  • Participants are responsible for all travel, evening meals, and lodging costs. 
  • The registration cost includes the fee to post the University Credit to a transcript. There is no requirement that participants are a matriculated student at the university to earn credit.
